William S. Lord, In Chicago Record
It Caused a Bomanos Amons fho
Bsrkshir Hills,
It was away up in western Massa
chusetta lust where the famous old
post road through the Berkshire hilla
winds itself Into New Ashford. The
black vanguard of an approaching sum
mer, storm crept along the valley be-
Und us, and a few stray raindrops al
ready warned that it was time to seek
for shelter. We turned in at the open
gate of t'.te vine covered porch of the
first farmyard, and riding up to
the vine-covered porch of the quaint
old house lifted our wheels to
protected spots at either side of the
paneled door. It may have been pre
suming upon hospitality as yet unex
tended, but then no one stops at such
conventionality in the Iteikslilres, and
were we not in the Iicrkslnres? The
storm burst, and we sat on the porch
beside our faithful steeds, watching
the clouds hurry by, the tall trees
bend in the eddying wind and the aool
ing water fall to tho thirsty earth.
Somehow the smoke of our cigarettes
seemed strangely out pf place, in that
old fashioned spot, and llarvey observed
that he would have felt more comfor
table with on old brier and n package
of plug cut A quiet half hour slipped
away, while the storm increased rather
than diminished, and realizing that we
were to be weather bound for a few
hours at least the necessity of a lunch
eon became apparent, and Harvey
arose to tho attack, llarvey Is an actor,
in season, and what he lias learned in
the matter of picking up meals on the
western circuits helpa him Immeasur
ably in Bummer vacutions, Repeated
beating upon tlio door failed, howovcr,
to elicit the slightest response from
the inmates, and my anticipatory
dreams ofa soft-eyed, rustle Ganymede
went gloomily to pioc'3.
"ThcM must bo a eorpso in the
house," remarked llarvey reassuringly,
loaning upon his bicycle and turning
on ma a look of hnn'j.'y resignation, i
was framinir in my mixl a ne.it reply,
more sarcastic than apropos, when tho
oaken door suddenly opened imvar.l,
and on extremely prutty girl, with
long, curly, golden hair ami big blue
eyes, confronted us. Surprise was mu
tual, but she seemed the m ist con-
J "Why, why," she faltered. "I-I
thonght to fin one of the neighbors,
! "There Is no cause for alarm," inter
j rupted Harvey in the voice of his most
I approved stage father, "Wo ore per
' feet gentlemen, although our appear
j ance is admittedly against us. We
took the liberty to use your porch as a
! shield from the weather, and trust that
I we ore not Intruding."
I "Oh, no no," she answered con
fusedly. "You will excuse me. Dave
is hurt I must go for the doctor," and
she ran by us and down the stops inlo
the rain, lifting her calico skirts just
high enough for us to see that her
pretty feet were but thinly covered
with light slippers, llarvey was at ner
side in an instant
"Pardon me," ho soid. "Where docs
the doctor llvo?"
"Only a mile or so," she replied with
out stopping, "up the road." (Hho
pronounced it "rud" but I am writing
this in English.) llarvey caught her
arm, and pulled her back to the shel
tering porch.
"But you must not run a mile or so,"
he cautioned, "in such a storm as this,
without hat, shawl, or shoes, It
would kill you. I will go for the doc
tor. , My wheel moves faster than
your little feet" The girl hesitated a
moment and then, as Harvey stood
ready to Btart away, thanked him
shortly and gave directions for finding
the doctor's house.
"All right Good-by," he shouted,
leaping into the saddle. "You toko care
of Dave."
"Oh, dear, I hope he'll hurryl" said
the girl turning to mo as Harvey that
out on the road, and sped away through
the mud and rain faster than he had
ever run from the villain in the play.
I thought a reply unnecessary.
"Perhaps I might assist you," I ven
tured. "I am a bit of an amateur
physician. May I see Dave?"
She led the way into the narrow hall
way, up the creaking staircase, wall
papered at the sides in imitation of
white marble, and into a stuffy little
chamber Just under the dripping
eaves. A great, deep chested, sun
burned young fellow lay upon a tiny
iron bedstead, while one muscular leg
hung over the edge, shattered and
bleeding. An old' woman with soft
gray hair and the eyes of the girl bent
above him and called his name again
and again, in tones of the most piteous
tenderness. As we entered she turned
to my pretty guide, and, regardless of
a strange presence, cried:
"He is dead, Clcmmle, deadl My
Dave is dead I" and fell at the side of
the little bed, sobbing and crying. The
girl quickly glided by me, and placing
her hand upon tha man's chest, said
"Ileis not dead only unconscious.''
I drew near and saw at once thut she
Was right The limb had been injured
in some farming accident and an artery
broken. I set about to stay the flow
of blood. The girl brought me a bit of
tape, and together we bound it tightly
about th Ueedlng limb, but It was not
strong enough, and the flow was only
decreased. I tore a slip from tha
counterpane and I wound it over the
tape, and this was a deuideJ Improve

torattTM I was just VMglnnlng to
wish myself back on Park jraw, whan
H array's familiar roica reaoandad
through the house, and in another
minute h. and the doetor.eorered from
head to loot with mud, were with me.
"Brought the doe along on mj coast
ers," explained Harrey. "Ilia hone
was too alow for the case,"
The doctor promptly ordered the girl
to remove her mother, and then with
our assistance set the broken bones,
bound up the leg and gave the patient
I light Injection ol morphine. By this
time the old lady had recovered and
waa back again. Tha doctor reassured
her in a few words and cautioned
against disturbing the aleeper,
"Let him sleep aa long as he will,"
he said, "and I'll hare him about in a
"A fortnight!" axclalmed the mother.
"Why, what will become of the farm?
He wa getting tn the hay when the
horse shied, and he went under the
rake and waa hurt We cannot do that
work, Clemmle can only look after
the cowa and chickens and the garden,
and I'm too frail to help her. Ohl Dave,
if we should lose yon" turning to the
bed "It would be all orer."
The alacrity with which Harvey and
I offered to remain on tha scene and
play farmhands until Dave waa well
was, I thought, only equaled by Clem
mie'a seconding ol the proposition, and
we staid.
Those three weeka It waa three be
fore Dare could walk were a beauti
ful Arcadian dream a breath of a life
we had nerer known before. It waa
all novelty, all Interest to us, and Clem
mle was a most excellent instructress
in the gentle art ol larmlng. Every
night when we had dono milking the
cows, feeding and watering the stock
and all the hundred other things that
rustics hare to do, llarvey would say:
"There Is no getting around It, you've
got to write a pastoral play lor me
when we get where there are pen and
ink. If, after this, 1 can't out-Whit-comb
Whltcomb and out-Prouty-Prouty
I want to know." And it seemed like
dropping the curtain on the prettiest
sort of a play when one sunny August
morning we rolled our wheels out and
pointed them for Pitts field. The trio
of the old house stood upon the quaint
little perch and watched u s oil up and
make ready, Dare was just able to bo
about and help himself. There wore
tears in the old mot) ir's eyes when she
held our hands and said:
"Good-by, my sons, and Uod be with
you. You have helped him to save my
Dave, and he will bloss you for It,
I've always heard that actors and
newspapor men were vory bad, Indeed,
but I'll never believe It again, Oood
by." And then Dave, on Clemmlo's
arm, hobbled down to the old vine
wound gate, and there we left them
standing In the shadow -of the great
elms and waving a parting t hat we had
promised should not be for long,
Neither of us had much to say aa we
glided along at the toot of the emerald
hills, and, for iny part, tears would
have come easier than words.
"That was an odd remark ol Clem-
mle's this morning," said Harvey at
